||Duke Nukem Forever holds the record of the longest period spent for making a game. After 14 years, Eventually the game was released. This game is so weird and different on many ways. Actually this game has a different structure however got many low and average ratings by many reviewers, But this subject didn't impact on the fanatics.
While many developers try to make a rich story, DNF writers kinda ridiculed any standards. The story is about the super hero of this series "Duke Nukem". In regards to prevent this game from getting spoiled I don't talk much about this, But the storyline seems a bit funny with instabilities and funny scenes. Sometimes the game doesn't follow a story literally.
Duke Nukem Forever is one of the weakest games technically in this generation. The game been under making phases and it's engine changed over and over. Sometimes even the designing team changed completely! The frame rates are really really low, Specially in crowded environments. Poor textures, soulless animations, poor designing of NPCs, lack of draw distance element and so on causes this game earns no point on graphic part.
Unlike the graphic, Music is better. There are some pretty good tracks through the game. Now let's get to the main point of the game! The character has been voiced by Jon St. John in all incarnations in which the character speaks (with the exception of Duke Nukem II), Duke's voice is based on that of Clint Eastwood as Dirty Harry. The character is super witty! and makes you laugh during the entire game with the way he speaks. Maybe 90% of the people come to experience this game only for the great characterization.
DNF has been made based on 14 years ago knowledge. So the gameplay simply sucks, it's super old. It reminds us old games with the really really simple gameplays. There is no innovation and standards on this part. However, The mission are varied, From riding a car to kill the aliens and different boss fighting. There is a gun that you can make your enemies small, You yourself can get small as well. All the Duke's guns are heavy and big. they are also good varied. You have a bar called "ego", this is almost like the shield in the Halo. The bar in fact is your shield, When it's runs out then your health bar will be appeared. By drinking beer your health, perseverance and stamina will be increased against the enemies. You can vision through the dark places by Duke Vision. There is an ability called "Holoduke", you can make a duplicate of yourself, shoot it through the environment and the Duke will be disappeared. This system that existed in Halo before is so efficient and you can remove the enemies easily.
It was obvious that Duke Nukem Forever will be a weak title technically, But the game with a funny gameplay and strong vocalizing reminded the old Duke Nukem. DNF, as mentioned is a weak game and if you are not a fan, You will not like that. But if you love it's character, it will be an interesting experience.
